The schlock you won't want to miss today.
» The Simpsons From 6pm, BBC2 ... A triple bill of great episodes. Unless you're in Scotland, in which case you are getting no episodes at all. Swizz!
» Absolutely Fabulous 9pm, BBC1 ... If you've been skipping these new episodes because you think the series went off the boil years ago, we urge you to give it another go. It's still not as good as it used to be, but a large injection of extra nastiness has made it well worth watching again. And Bubble is funnier than ever. (Switch to BBC3 right after to see the next episode)
» The Pilot Show 11.15pm, Channel 4 ... Remember those fake newspaper and magazine ads inviting randy men to appear on a reality TV show called Lapdance Island? You can see the highlights of the auditions, along with many other fake TV pilots, in this new series.

According to Marxist theory, cultural forms such as opera, classical music and the literary works of Shakespeare all fall under the heading of high culture. Low culture refers to a wide variety of cultural themes that are characterised by their consumption by the masses.
We might not be Marxists, but we do know we loved Footballers Wives. If you do too, you'll know what this is all about.
